What brand is your meter? I bought one myself omron ci my doc doesn't rentOne day I was browsing through the shelves at Guardian and saw that they sell glucose meter at the same price as I paid for my rental set (though different brands). The glucose strips and lancets were much cheaper too. Kicked myself for not having done prior research cos I could have bought one myself and could continue to use after I give birth. I also went Guardian to check out the price of glucose strips and lancets compatible with my rental set. The outlet doesn't have my glucose strips, but the lancets and alcohol swabs were more than half price cheaper than what I paid at my gynae My gynae already overcharged himself, these kind of things also want to earn more than double. So I decided to buy the supplies myself and don't let him earn!
